Small enough to view the entire museum without feeling exhausted like in most museums. Variety of exhibits and well priced entry. Not too crowded, even for a smaller space

This is a hidden NJ pearl. Had heard it was nice but never got there. Had been disappointed with the Liberty Sience Center so was skeptical. Well, finally went and glad I did. Saw the Angels and Tomboys exhibit and was really impressed. Also, went into the Ballantine Mansion part of museum which was beatiful - rooms all decorated in period. Many ancient artifact collections but was getting tired so need to go back to see more of the place. Parking lot on premise. Overall, great experience.

Went to see a Bruce Springsteen exhibit , and didn't have time to stay to look thru the rest of the museum. But I was very surprised at the size and scope of this museum. If in the area, it is certainly worth a visit.

I stayed at the airport and saw an ad in the Visitor's magazine about an exhibit titled "Angels and Tomboy's". I ventured out to the Museum, near Rutgers Univ, and had only an hour before they closed. The exhibit was wonderful and somewhat mesmerizing. I also had time to shop at the Museum Gift Store which had a suprising variety of items.
